Hemalkasa is the true story of Dr. Prakash Baba Amte and his wife Dr. Mandakini Amte, who dedicated their lives to a project for the development of tribal people of Maharashtra, India, in the toughest of conditions with little or no support from the establishment.
Prakash became restless seeing that, on one hand people had reached the moon while here still people were living as animals. Prakash went there just to treat them but became a part of them.
Dr. Mandakini and Prakash loved each other from collage days. Leaving her luxurious life behind, she decided to accompany Prakash without any condition.
This is where the real story begins in the dense forest of Hemalkasa. They struggle with tribals, struggle with wild animal, struggle with Naxalites and corrupt government officials. But today after 45 years of struggle, Hemalkasa has become an example to the world.
